Featured this week: Solomons intervention: John Howard's new colonialism

The Howard government decision to send 1500 Australian troops and 150 
armed federal police to the Solomon Islands is being presented in the 
corporate media as aimed at helping a Pacific island neighbor to end 
massive lawlessness. Green Left Weekly explains why it is actually an 
exercise in Australian colonialism.
